BRUSSELS, October 6. /TASS/. The European Union condemns the Sunday terrorist attack in the Chechen capital Grozny, its press release said on Monday.
It said an attack against civilians could not be justified and expressed condolences to the families of the killed policemen as well as the Russian government and the Russian people.
The explosion went off at about 5 pm, Moscow time, on Sunday. Police officers found a home-made explosive device on a man walking through a metal detector at a scene of mass festivities in central Grozny. The terrorist blew himself up as the police tried to arrest him. Five policemen were killed and 12 were injured in the explosion.
An investigation is underway. The terrorist has been preliminarily identified as a resident of Grozny’s Staropromyslovsky district, who had been missing since he had left home two months ago. The man was killed in the blast.
